Resolving civil disputes through mediation or litigation – civil disputes are a fact of life. Expensive, ongoing legal battles are not. The McVeagh Fleming team is qualified and motivated to bring a speedy resolution to your civil disputes through mediation and, if necessary, litigation.

Civil Disputes

Civil disputes often require expert advice in a specialised legal area, and sound knowledge of civil court procedures. McVeagh Fleming’s litigation team understand the procedural aspects of the legal system to ensure that it is used to produce the best available outcome for our clients in the most efficient manner possible.

Mediation and Arbitration

McVeagh Fleming is aware that pursuing litigation can be expensive and stressful for all parties concerned. Therefore, where mediation or arbitration can be followed to provide speedy and efficient settlement, we will pursue (and encourage other parties to pursue) a solution that enables the parties to sit down together and attempt to reach an acceptable solution.
